Beehive Biometrics, Inc. is about to launch the first beta of an API that provides an identity score i.e. a measure of confidence that a given user is indeed a real person. It builds upon identity technologies encompassing social network analysis, face recognition, semantic text analysis, machine learning, sentiment analysis, and temporal profiling. It also uses private and public data sources. The API would allow developers to easily include biometric technology in their applications. Located in Austin, TX the company was registered in mid March 2013 and raised $50,000 in mezzanine instrument from one investor. The company is led by Mary Haskett (CEO) and Freeman Kilpatrick (CTO). The company is actively seeking online companies to help test the version.
